It's a patch to OE stuff that's in the OpenMoko tree.  I started to move it
to the openembedded/patches directory, but when I searched out the package
it would be modifying in that tree, I found that the openembedded pulseaudio
package is at version 0.9.5 instead of the 0.9.6 that is in the
openmoko/trunk/oe tree.

The file I need to patch is

And since there's a link from /home/moko/oe to /home/moko/openmoko/trunk/oe,
that file can also be found at:
